I bought a new PC from PC World 3 years ago, my thinking being that if it lasts 3 years without going wrong I will have been extremely lucky. I'v only had one fault, the DVD wouldn't open so I took it to the shop. I waited an hour then the manager called me over and gave me the PC Base back. How much? I asked. 'Forget it mate, I'm leaving at the end of the month!!!!
However, each week I put just £3 into a tin. This means that after 3 years I have the grand total of £468 for a new computer. Not a lot of money but that's all I can afford. So try it, but NO TOUCHING!! lol
I never ever by warrantys. I used to years ago but whatever went wrong with the telly, kettle,stereo etcc etc is was always the one thing that was never covered. lol
When I bought my machine Iadmit I had a little help from mum, and so bought an e-machine 220. It's brilliant, and apart from upping the ram to 2gb done by a mate, it's never gone wrong. Anyone else got anything to say about e-machines?
Regarding the e-machine from PC World. I was in one of their stores last Sunday, and someone was returning one of these computers with what looked like a letter from Mastercare. Very impressed by the store staff's action, they contacted the duty manager, and the person left the store with a brand new off the shelf product. No quibble at all, and he seemed very pleased.
